ATLANTA (FOX 5) — Atlanta police said Wednesday that well-known television minister, Juanita Bynum, became the victim of domestic abuse after her husband savagely beat her in a hotel parking lot Tuesday night.

A relative of Reverend Bynum told FOX 5 News that the Reverend Bynum and her husband, Bishop Thomas Weeks, are in the middle of a separation.

The relative said the two agreed to meet Tuesday night in the dining room of the Renaissance Hotel near Hartsfield-Jackson airport.

The meeting reportedly did not go well and ended with Bishop Weeks leaving abruptly. The relative said Reverend Bynum followed him to the parking lot where the two exchanged words.

According to an Atlanta Police Department report, that’s when Weeks allegedly attacked her. In a statement to police, Reverend Bynum said her husband, Thomas Weeks, “choked her, pushed her down, kicked her and stomped her in the Renaissance parking lot.”

Ronald Campbell of the APD said a bellhop at the hotel saw the attack, intervened and stopped it.

Officer Campbell said Reverend Bynum suffered multiple bruises and swelling and required hospitalization.

Reverend Bynum is being kept at an undisclosed location.

Police are searching for Thomas Weeks.
